About this app

The MMGuardian Parental Control app for the parent's phone is used to manage and monitor the MMGuardian Child App installed on a teen's or pre-teen's Android or iPhone directly from the parent's phone. Similar to mspy, it receives alerts when text messages, certain social media chat messages or web searches are indicative of drugs, sexting, cyberbullying, child grooming, violence, suicidal thoughts and more. But it is way better than mspy due to its high accuracy on identifying safety risks using AI. With the MMGuardian Parental Control Child app installed to your child's Android phone, you will be able to monitor and block: • SMS text messages • Web browsing activity • Application usage • To whom voice calls are made*

Social Media Chat Monitoring

In addition to normal SMS texts, chat messages from Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok and Discord are reported. Also, alerts will be sent if the content in a chat message appears to relate to one of nine special alert categories including sexting, cyberbullying and suicidal thoughts. The benefits of using MMGuardian Parental Control when your child has an Android phone include: • Alerting you when text messages or web searches are indicative of sexting, cyberbullying, suicidal thoughts and more. • Alerting you when pictures on your child's phone, or sent in an MMS message, are of an adult nature or indicative of sexting. • Comprehensive reports covering: - SMS and selected social media app text messages. - Usage of applications - Web browsing using the Chrome browser - Voice Calls* • Locate your child's phone, on a map. • Lock or Unlock the child's phone with a simple button press • Set or edit configurations for: - Screen time limits: set up bed time and school times to control screen time. - Application control: block or set up usage limits for apps and games. - SMS block and Call block*: block calls and texts with undesirable contacts. - Scheduled locate: set times to automatically locate the phone. - Web Filter: block browsing of undesired sites in Chrome, Firefox and other leading browsers, using easy age-based settings or customized rules. You will need to install and register the MMGuardian App For Child Phone app on your child's Android phone. The child phone can be linked to the parent phone app only when both are registered using the same email address and password. Both your phone and your child's phone should have network data capability, as the app uses data to send and receive configuration commands, reports and alerts. You may purchase subscriptions or licenses to apply to the MMGuardian Parental Control app installed on your child's Android phone from within this Parent App, to avoid having to add payment credentials (credit cards etc) to your child's Google Play account. After the free 14 day trial period of the app on the child's phone has ended, unless the child phone app is licensed or has an ongoing subscription, the functions in the Parent App that relate to premium functions on the child's app will be disabled. However you can still use MMGuardian to locate, or to lock or unlock your child's Android phone remotely. Single phone subscriptions are available at USD $3.99 monthly or USD $34.99 annually, and a 5 Year License is available for USD $79.99. Family plans covering up to 5 devices are available at twice the single phone price. Unlike mspy and other spying apps, we highly encourage parents to discuss the reasons to use a parent control app with their children, to help protect them from potential risks of their own actions and the actions of others, such as excessive screen time, cyberbullying and sexting.

Works well enough. It has helped me help my teen navigate some unexpected technology pitfalls. Our cell provider didn't support a custom SMS app when we first signed up, so I didn't lock the child phone into using it "for best results." I was still able to see most, if not all of the messaging going on, it was just glitchy. It often shows many copies of the same message and can be difficult to tell who is the sender and who is the recipient. Time limits and location features work pretty well

It's ok. It does a great job at restricting, but I wish there was more control for the parent app on allowing certain things. For example, making outgoing phone calls or just being notified when something is being looked up instead of blocking. I have used this app for almost a year and all of a sudden I have to pay a subscription fee for anything to work?

This app has been an absolute game changer. We foster parent high risk teens and none of the other apps we tried worked for what we needed. It cheaper and better than Bark because it lets you see everything if needed. It works with most apps, has great location tracking, shuts off the phone over running apps, and is hack proof. It has caught suicide threats, bullying, sexual content, and allows us to continue providing the phones and apps teens want without all the risk. Thank you!
